Have to remember where I put that list...

A place to talk about specific theists and our interactions with 'em. Should we engage or dismiss? Are there effective strategies?

I should have posted a caveat that we should wait to see how that one turns out. As we should with all of such cases.

I think you won't do badly if you take the Bible literally- but just the one verse: God is love. And molesting children is not loving.

I am pretty sure sick individuals can use any verse to justify anything they do.

True enough, beams. But so can nice individuals. It's just a matter of picking the right verse and interpreting it for oneself. But I'm not trying to exonerate the Bible.

It's a product of its times. We move on and these things never age well. This is why people pick and choose what they want out of these books to match the current moral zeitgeist.
